Pablo Picasso梥uperhero? There is that sense in Jonah Winter抯 merry look at the innovative artist who never settled for doing the same thing over and over: 揟o copy yourself is pathetic! Classically trained and highly skilled, Pablo moved from one mood and phase to another in his work. He did repeat himself, but only for a while before he became bored and moved on to pursue a new idea or inspiration. And when he debuted his most radical idea yet桟ubism梩he howls of protest were astounding: 揓ust behave, Pablo Picasso! Winter抯 account takes artistic liberty but the truth is in the big idea: Picasso was a visionary, but following that vision took courage. Winter抯 narrative demands readers attention with its urgency, but it抯 playful, too, as are Kevin Hawkes抯 bold illustrations, with occasional dynamic speech bubbles incorporated into the art.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
